DIY sessions for grown-ups!

Learn cool new skills with crash courses at the CAC.

Learn something new in 1 hour. It's like a cool crafting camp or olde tyme trade apprenticeship but without the bugs, the hassles of a sleepover, or the 10 year learning curve.

Meet others with common interests. This isn't your grandmother's crafting circle (or if it is, your grandma's awesome). This is CAC-style DIY: fresh, engaging and social. This is where you can come together to share resources and knowledge, and to build and make cool things.

No commitment. No clean up. Just fun.

The CAC is seeking local craftspeople, artists, and those in between to submit proposals for One Night, One Craft. Selected artists will host a workshop teaching participants their craft and making a piece to take home! Submit a proposal here.
